'Justice and Peace' was formed in response to Vatican II, Pope Paul VI setting up the Pontifical Commission for justice and peace in 1967. A justice and peace group was founded in Johannesburg in 1973/4. ' Justice and Peace' was keenly aware that Apartheid had been a key characteristic of societal imbalances. Apart from its primary focus which was to raise awareness in the Catholic Community, Justice and Peace worked closely with both local and international organisations (religious and lay) who were committed to transforming society through justice and reconciliation.
